Description: Watercolor drawing on paper. Image measures 7 1/4" x 6 7/16".

Comments: This original watercolor drawing depicts sulpher matches, a candle extinguisher, and the inside and outside of a combination tin tinder box, from the collection of Daniel C. Beard. The drawing dates from 1892, when Beard worked as an illustrator for books by Mark Twain, Ernest Crosby, and others. The choice of subject matter no doubt relates both to his early career as an engineer and surveyor, as well as to his later dedication to the pioneering spirit through his involvement with the Boy Scouts of America. This original drawing is in good condition with a charming yellow border. Daniel Carter Beard (1850-1941) was an American illustrator, author, youth leader, and social reformer. In 1905, he founded the Sons of Daniel Boone, a youth organization that taught American frontier traditions and skills to young boys. In 1910, he merged his organization with the Boy Scouts of America and became actively involved in the Scouts and other youth organizations.
